I can't think of any in the archive, but Bruce Hornsby has a solo show available for purchase on his download site (, and cannot be overrated as a pianist.

Also, Brad Mehldau springs to mind as another great pianist currently in his prime. His "Live In Tokyo" is excellent, including some covers of Nick Drake and Radiohead.

And I apologize if you know these guys, but for piano, you'll never, ever do better than Keith Jarrett's live releases (The Vienna Concert, for instance, but there are several). If you haven't heard his stuff, you really need to. His legend does not begin to outgrow his music.

While not on the Archive, Bill Payne, Keyboardest for Little Feat has some solo shows in his collection. Seeing as Little Feat and the guitarists, Paul nad Fred are on the Archive, I would not be surprized if he would be Trade Friendly.

Maybe someone who has the right contacts can look into this?
Bill Payne is the best pianist in my books.
